Answer: 
The package says "not suitable for totally enclosed fixtures." I'm not sure if that's what you mean by "covered." It doesn't say anything about outdoor use, which probably means it's OK, because they would certainly include warnings about anything dangerous.

I have been using them on a chandelier with a dimmer and the color does not change....If it does, than I have not noticed it and I am a stickler for that sort of change. We have 8 of them in our dining room and cannot notice a change at all....they are gorgeous bulbs.

Answer: 
I have not used this exact bulb in an exterior application. I have used numerous LED bulbs of different shapes and wattages, that were listed as "indoor application", in outdoor fixtures that protect the bulb from direct water contact *other than condensation*. I have had no problems associated with installing indoor LED bulbs in a protected outdoor environment.

40W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) B13 Dimmable Blunt Tip Candle LED Light Bulb is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement LED for clear incandescent chandelier bulbs Philips did a great job on this new LED decorative bulb. When lit, this crystal clear 2700k LED blunt tip candelabra 40w equivalent bulb has a great clean sparkle to the star shaped clear light diffuser that makes them look very much like an incandescent, and spreads the light around the dining room better than other bulbs I have tried. My wife didn't like the look of the last LED bulbs I tried in this 12 lamp dining room chandelier, prefers to use clear bent tip incandescent 60w bulbs for the looks but I changed out half of the bulbs to the new 40w Philips LED and she hasn't even noticed any difference this time...yet..lol. As others mentioned, the ceramic base is an off white neutral color. I like them, they put out lots of light, huge energy savings, and price is reasonable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best out there Ive tried many brands and most are too dim, or cast an artificial shadow. These are fantastic. I have a 3-bulb mount on an outdoor fixture where I typically use halogens, but they burn out after a year and are expensive to run. These Philips LEDs are sparkly and the exact same color and almost the same brightness. I used two LEDs and kept one halogen in the mix and it aside from the physical configuration it was not obvious which was the halogen and which were the LEDs (brightness and color). However, the were mounted inside a glass globe that was slightly "old world" amber, so that may skew your results otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good light, bright, but picture online does not reflect reality I have looked very hard for led candelabra bulbs that have good light, at least close to something incandescent. This bulb does a very good job, with acceptable dimming. My concern is that the picture online does not reflect what it looks like in person. The online picture has a gold or brass tone for the base, which I liked. The base of the real bulb is just an off white/eggshell color, made of ceramic. The picture online is significantly more attractive than the real bulb. I would like to find a build where the base looks at least somewhat attractive. The fixture is an open chandelier over a table, and the bulb appearance (not just light) is important. These do not look bad, but still not great. Bulb appearance matters, they do no all go in enclosed fixtures.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still not quite there I bought this bulb as part of my quest to find an LED packaged in a candelabra socket that I like enough to replace numerous candelabra based lights around my home. The short answer is that I am still looking. Before I settle on a replacement, I will want the color to be closer to 3500 K (bright white), the price will have to come down and hopefully the big white base that conceals the electronics will be smaller. After all, who is going to want to put an ugly looking bulb in a nice antique chandelier? After waiting years to get CFL's with satisfactory light color and lumen output for the more run of the mill light fixtures, why should I settle for anything less from an LED? It seems to me the stated "equivalence" should be based on the actual lumen output, not some marketer's interpretation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for our application The bulbs work nicely in our application. They easily fit the existing, small individual diffusers on a 5 bulb lamp. Replaced 60w incandescent bulbs with 40w LED with no noticeable loss in light in the room. Significantly reduces the heat gain in the room which was the primary reason for the purchase. Dimmable feature is nice to control the total light output.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as designed This bulb works exactly as designed. You can feel the quality of the materials used. There is a good weight and density. The light is well distributed. It is a perfect replacement for an incandescent bulb of similar size and shape. It does not have the "flame" look of some incandescent bulbs. The shape is much "cleaner" with smooth and straight lines. The 2700k light temperature is a nice reproduction of the light emitted by an incandescent. I think the price of LED bulbs for the household are still a little too high for the general market except for use in an outdoor environment, where they excel in performance and life of bulb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from great Light but does not dim off I agree with other reviewers about the amount of light it produces to be similar to the regular light bulb. But I used them for my dinning room dimmable chandler and they were not dimming off. They were flickering on the lowest dim level while I pressed the switch to turn off. However, They worked ok when I used them for my wall scones (NOT DIMMABLE). Another con is that the light is too bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If it lasts like it is supposed to it will be terrific Can not give it a excellent value until it last like it is supposed to. Light quality is great.
